Even a worm will turn and it looks like Wotif/Expedia are doing just that.

As of today, a world first for STAR Ratings Australia who, through their trade mark ownership of Australia of 'STARs' have forced Expedia to show 'dots' for Self-rated properties for the first time. This has yet to filter through to the Expedia OTA site, but has now happened on the new Wotif.

In addition, those properties that have yet to sign up with Expedia are also shown as Self-rated 'dots'.

There is still some way to go to get the site fully compliant, but this is a HUGE win for Australia over the all powerful American owned Expedia.
